Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
When you do something you are proud of, dwell on it a little, praise yourself for it. — Mildred Newman
Each one of us is very good at something. Maybe it’s baseball or tennis where we display talent. Maybe we’re good in math or at giving reports. A few people are talented at being good listeners or helpful friends. To recognize our own talents, we may need help from others. It’s always so much easier to see our faults, or the ways we don’t meet our own expectations.
But the fact is we are all skilled in many areas of our lives. To accept praise-better yet, to quietly give it to ourselves-is a sign of healthy growth.
